Savages @ CMJ 2012 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Savages

SXSW gets underway today (3/13) in earnest, with 83,207 bands* playing SXSW this year. Trying to figure out who to see can be an overwhelming feeling. (Actually, just standing on 6th St. on Friday night is an overwhelming feeling.) Hopefully this post will give you some inspiration if you're among the throngs of people. Or maybe just some new stuff to listen to if you're not there.

Of course you could just hang out at all our day parties (our first starts at noon today!) and evening showcases, as we're really proud of our line-ups. But there are bands who we are pumped to see who aren't playing too. So here are 40 bands we're genuinely pumped to see in Austin this week. We made a Spotify playlist of all the bands (at least the ones on the service) you can stream below.

Check out our list below...

*not the actually number of showcasing bands. But it feels accurate.

Divine Fits at VICELAND at SXSW 2013
Divine Fits

I'll spare you the boring details of my day's worth of delayed flights, but after finally landing in Austin at 10 PM last night (3/12), I darted over to The Jansport Bonfire Sessions @ VICELAND (which, for those of you in Austin, is located on 401 E Cesar Chavez, right across from the Austin Convention Center) and got there a few songs into Wavves' set. Wavves always bring a good time but this was more packed and wild than I'd seen them before. They used the show to preview a lot of their new album, Afraid of Heights, and if you thought King of the Beach had pop punk tendencies, on these new songs it's pretty much full blown 1995-1997 era skate punk. Your feelings on how that genre lives up in 2013 may alter your opinion on the new record, but Wavves do it well.

Up next were Japandroids, who picked up where Wavves left off and made things even wilder. After telling the security guards to leave the stage because they were "sucking the life out of the show," and repeated challenges aimed at the crowd that we weren't going hard enough, the energy level and spirit never stopped rising last night. Because it's SXSW, the set was short, but they included all the choice tracks -- "Fire's Highway," "Young Hearts Spark Fire," "The House That Heaven Built," etc. -- and for a band whose shows are always fun, last night may have been the best I've seen them.

Finally, Spoon/Wolf Parade related supergroup Divine Fits closed out the night. Granted it was almost 1 AM when they started, and their music is less ferocious than the two previous bands, but the crowd did calm down and began to filter out a bit. They did more of Britt Daniel's songs than Dan Boeckner's, and though I'm personally on Team Dan, it was still a solid set all things considered. For a "supergroup" the band have great chemistry on stage, and they're a lot more humble than they're allowed to be given their past projects (which is a good thing).

VICELAND continues tonight with IO Echo, Austra, Merchandise, Icona Pop, and The Joy Formidable. And Divine Fits, Japandroids, and Wavves all have more shows too (click the links for more info). One of Japandroids' next shows is tonight (3/13) with Iggy and the Stooges, The Specials, and Ghostface Killah.

FBZ & UA

The Underachievers and Flatbush Zombies are about to kick off a tour together supporting Joey Bada$$, which begins with all three artists in Austin for SXSW this week. And those two groups have just teamed up for a collaborative track, "No Religion." The Underachievers and Flatbush Zombies are a good fit to work together -- they both love charismatically rapping about drugs over blown out production. On "No Religion" they don't talk too much about drugs, but what they do talk about is pretty great ("Stop trying to be Tupac, try and be better," I mean someone had to say it) and the rest of what usually makes those groups great is there. Listen to the track below (via Stereogum).

The Underachievers also recently freestyled and talked about Flying Lotus for Pitchfork.tv's "Selector." You can watch that video below. While they're in Austin for SXSW, The Underachievers play the BrooklynVegan Official Showcase on Friday (3/15) at Maggie Mae's Rooftop at 11 PM.

Song stream and video below...

Milk Music/Fat Tony/The Blind Shake @ Bruise Cruise, Austin, TX, 3/10/2013
Milk Music
Fat Tony
Blind Shake

Though the music portion of SXSW isn't in full force yet, there are still some shows that have gone down, including yesterday's (3/10) Bruise Cruise with Milk Music, Fat Tony, The Blind Shake, and Outer Minds. Like Bruise Cruise lineups always tend to be, it was a good party-style way to kick off SXSW with three punkish bands and an energetic rapper to top things off. Pictures from that cruise are in this post.

All four bands have other SXSW shows coming up, and Milk Music will be at our Thursday day party on the outdoor stage with Cloud Nothings, METZ, The Spits, Death, Rough Francis, and Single Mothers. It's free with RSVP.

Fat Tony also just released the song "Hood Party," which features Kool A.D. (formerly of Das Racist) and Despot), and will appear on his new album, Smart Ass Black Boy, which is due out on June 11 via Young One Records. You can download that track above or stream it below.

The Bruise Cruise was thrown by booking agency Panache, who also has other upcoming SXSW shows too.

Colleen Green will release her new album, Sock it to Me, via Hardly Art next week (3/19). Backed by a rinky dink drum machine and fuzzed-out guitars, Green delivers pop gem after pop in her appealingly honeyed and harmonied vocal style. It's a great record and you can download two tracks above and stream the whole album below (via Stereogum).

Colleen is spending this week, you might be surprised to learn, in Austin for SXSW but will be playing the rest of the country on tour afterwards, including a stop in NYC on April 21 at Death by Audio. All dates -- including her SXSW schedule -- are listed below.

Passion Pit in Chicago last month (more by Cory Dewald)
Passion Pit

Passion Pit, who already had a song in a Taco Bell commercial, are in Austin for SXSW Interactive to film a Taco Bell-sponsored rockumentary titled Feed the Beat: SXSW 2013, which includes live footage that will be streamed live TONIGHT (3/11) at Hype Machine's Hype Hotel. Once documentarian Sam Jones finishes the film, it will be sourced to all fans for free. The rockumentary will also feature tweets, vines, and instagrams from fans that use the hashtag #FeedtheBeat. Wildcat! Wildcat! open.

Speaking of SXSW, like Hype Machine, BrooklynVegan will be presenting multiple days of shows in Austin this week. Check BrooklynVegan.com/SXSW for full lineups and more details.

Both Hype Hotel and BrooklynVegan Day Parties are also participating in RDIO's "RDIO List," which will get RDIO account holders with the RDIO app priority admission to the day shows.

The Hype Hotel Passion Pit show, though being streamed live to the whole internet-connected world, will only have around 1000 people in attendance - much more intimate than the the headlining show Passion Pit recently played at Madison Square Garden in NYC. Film trailer below...

Vulgar Fashion

Denton crew Vulgar Fashion wows 'em with the new track "Pact with the Devil," the latest song to emerge from the band's Colin-Marston-produced self-titled debut 10". Due via Handmade Birds on March 19, you can check out that noise-damaged gothic-synth-punk track below for the first time along with another track "Golden Showers" (not an R.Kelly cover)(sorry, couldn't resist).

Handmade Birds honcho R.Loren will join BV/ IO contributors Kim Kelly and Andy O'Connor and yours truly as part of the DJ squad set for the Pitchfork Show No Mercy showcase on 3/13 at Mohawk during SXSW.

Earl Sweatshirt
Earl Sweatshirt

Odd Future member Earl Sweatshirt will be making his SXSW debut this year (he wasn't there when the rest of his crew first played), and will be doing collaborative sets with Captain Murphy, aka Flying Lotus' rap alter ego (who collaborated with him on "Between Friends"). Those sets include the Life or Death showcase on Wednesday (3/13) at Scoot Inn at midnight, the Green Label Sound showcase on Friday (3/15) at Lucille at 9:30 PM, and FADER Fort on Saturday (3/16) at 6 PM. Flyers for all three of those shows with full lineups are below.

Earl just appeared at Flying Lotus' LA show at Low End Theory last week (3/7) and they performed three tracks off Earl's upcoming album, Doris, "Burgundy" (produced by Pharrell), "Hive," and "Guild." Mac Miller is featured on that last one and he was at the LA show too. You can check it all out in a video from the show, which is below. Also below is the video for previously released Doris track, "Chum," and Earl has another new video on the way too.

Earl's other upcoming dates include some festival appearances like Bonnaroo, Sasquatch!, and Coachella. All dates are listed, along with those flyers and videos, below...

DOWNLOAD: 3421 - "Sparks" (MP3)

3421

Israeli live dubstep duo 3421, who we first caught at the Jerusalem Music Conference over the summer, are coming over to the US for some shows this month, including of course, SXSW. While they're in Austin, they'll open the official BrooklynVegan showcase at 8 PM, which goes down on Friday March 15 on the Maggie Mae's Rooftop (323 E. 6th Street) with XXYYXX, Mykki Blanco, The Underachievers, Pictureplane, and more. SXSW badges are welcome and general admission tickets will be available at the door.

After SXSW, the duo will pass through NYC for a previously mentioned show at Mercury Lounge on March 20 with Roy Orbit (tickets), and another show two days earlier at Knitting Factory (3/18) for a VVYNL party with I, Synthesist, Khalid Rivera, DJ David Martinez, and LoveCryme. TIckets for that show are on sale now. All dates are listed below.

3421's live setup consists of a drummer (who plays an acoustic kit) and a synth player/vocalist. Their track, "Sparks," which you can watch an official live video of below and download above, combines Interpol-esque baritone vocals with bass-heavy dubstep rhythms. In that one, the "dubstep" parts are more along the lines of Rustie or SBTRKT, but other tracks, like "Ultimate Sun" have more maximalist bass drops like Woo Boost-era Rusko.

All dates are listed, along with that video and song streams, below...

Permanent Collection

San Francisco's Permanent Collection released their debut album, Newly Wed Nearly Dead, last August on Loglady Records. Frontman Jason Hendardy, who runs the label with Lauren loPrete, used to be in Young Prisms and there's more than a little shoegaze in PC's sound but is definitely poppier than Hendardy's old band. You can stream the whole thing below.

Permanent Collection are visiting NYC at the moment, playing Shea Stadium tonight (3/8) with Darlings, Field Mouse, and Honeydrum (info here, that's a good show!); and the previously-mentioned Cake Shop show on Saturday (3/9) with Italy's His Clancyness, Spires and former Get Him Eat Him frontman Matt LeMay.

Meanwhile, Cake Shop and Loglady will be in Austin next week for SXSW, co-presenting a showcase that happens Friday (3/15) at Trailerspace Records. Permanent Collection are playing, as are Part Time, California X, TV Ghost, Grandma's Boyfriend, Waxahatchee, and Dead Angle (ex-Tartans). It's a free show, all ages. More info here, and all Permanent Collection dates are listed, along with the Loglady/Cake Shop flyer, below.

Mac DeMarco

The Savannah Stopover kicked off last night (3/7) in the genteel Georgia city. Over 100 bands on their way to SXSW (and a few that aren't) will play through Saturday (3/9). Intrepid BV photographer Dominick Mastrangelo will be covering the fest for us and arrived last night just in time to catch Mac DeMarco's headlining set at The Jinx. Hijinx is more like it judging from these photos.

More coverage from the Savannah Stopover to come and more pics from Mac's set are below.

"Your showcase is..... interesting"
Grumpy Cat

Forget about Nick Cave, Depeche Mode, Death, Today is The Day, METZ, all of them. I've got one goal and one goal only: to see Grumpy Cat live and in person at SXSW 2013. As noted a couple of days ago on @BVSXSW, The frowned-one will appear live and in purr-son (sorry!) for the interactive portion (sorry Music attendees) of the fest and will shoot Friskies commercials in the days following. Check out the original Grumpy Cat video below.

Death at Europa in 2010 (more by Ben Lozovsky)
Death

Long lost protopunk band Death, who made a return in 2009 when Drag City released their debut album and have been sticking around ever since, have gotten the documentary treatment. A Band Called Death, directed by Mark Covino and Jeff Howlett, was released in 2012 and it will be screening at SXSW this year (screening times are HERE).

Death

The film description reads:

Before Bad Brains, the Sex Pistols or even the Ramones, there was Death. Formed in the early '70s by three teenage brothers from Detroit, Death is credited as being the first black punk band, and the Hackney brothers, David, Bobby, and Dannis, are now considered pioneers in their field. But it wasn't until recently -- when a dusty 1974 demo tape made its way out of Bobby's attic nearly 30 years after Death's heyday -- that anyone outside a small group of punk enthusiasts had even heard of them.

Equal parts electrifying rockumentary and epic family chronicle, the story of Death is one of brotherly love and fierce, divinely inspired expression.

Death themselves will also be at SXSW for a couple shows. They'll play at TenOak on Thursday (3/14) at 12:50 AM (so technically Friday), and earlier that day they'll play a BrooklynVegan day party, which happens at the old Emo's location, 603 Red River St. Death's set is a special early one at 1:30 PM on Thursday and the party is totally free. Rough Francis (aka Death's sons band) will also be at the BV party, playing right before them at 12:45.

TWMTH

Among the many foreign bands stopping in NYC on their way to or from SXSW this year are Norwegian duo Tomorrow We Move to Hawaii. Their new EP, Still Life, is squelchy electropop that is both hummable and danceable. You can stream a couple cuts from it, plus a couple other singles, below.

TWMTH play Cake Shop tonight (3/7) and the Trash Bar in Williamsburg on Sunday (3/10) with Deaf Echo and Kiddo. The duo then head to Texas to duke it out for the many festival-goers and drunk springbreakers' attention. All tour dates are listed below.

Paws at Cake Shop - 3/6/13 (via BrooklynVegan Instagram)
Paws

Scottish trio PAWS brought their raucous pop punk to the US this week, having touched down in NYC for shows at Glasslands on Tuesday (3/5) and Cake Shop last night (3/6). I caught their set in the low-ceiling, dimly lit basement of Cake Shop last night and they're just as upbeat and energetic at their shows as they are on Cokefloat!, their debut album, which came out last year. They played a bunch of choice cuts from that album like "Sore Tummy," "Catherine 1956," and "Bloodline," in addition to material off of their new cassette (if you were at the show, did you pick one up?) and an amped up cover of Big Deal's "Chair." It was a super fun show and you'll have one more chance to catch the band in NYC when they play Shea Stadium on Saturday (3/9) with Lost Boy? and Lame Drivers. A picture of PAWS' setlist from last night is below.

PAWS are also making their way down to Austin for SXSW, and while they're there, they'll play a BrooklynVegan day party on Thursday, March 14 at The Main and The Jr. (aka 603 Red River St aka the old Emo's location). They play The Jr stage with Parenthetical Girls, Jacco Gardner, and more TBA. PAWS are on at 3 PM and like all of our day parties, this one is 100% FREE with RSVP.

Updated PAWS dates are listed, along with last night's setlist and a stream of their cassette, below...

Following an early live outing from Prince Innocence, she effortlessly commands the attention of the jostling room, her performance is completely natural, professional and expressive. Bounding around the small stage in a brilliantly baggy t-shirt, proudly brandishing the Chess Club Records crest, she is a bundle of frenetic energy, an energy which translates into the music she produces so succinctly. The opening to 'Maiden' blasts out early in the set; its crystal clear guitar riff, rumbling bass synth and manufactured drums are a potent song-writing weapon used to full effect.

With another twinkling opening hook that summons an almost Yuletide feeling, latest track 'Glass' comes flying out next and is a definite highlight. "What a pleasant sensation!" is belted out at the top-end of her powerful range, confirming how prolific a chorus-creator MØ is as. The aforementioned 'Pilgrim' and the closing 'Crazy For You' are equally impressive; the former making use of the fidgeting monochrome projection behind, showing playful, immaculately timed visuals of vintage horn sections and swing dancing. - [The Line of Best Fit]

With only three released tracks to her name, Danish singer Karen Marie Ørsted -- you can call her -- is already garnering a lot of attention and comparisons to other female electronic artists who shall remain nameless. You can stream all those songs below. MØ is in NYC as we speak playing a couple shows here before heading to SXSW. She's at Santos tonight (3/7) for a FREE Popshop party with Watch the Duck; and will play Glasslands on Friday with Alpine and White Prism (tickets). All tour dates are listed below.

Some in NYC may have caught her during CMJ 2012. She was here with a film crew and you can watch a short documentary about her CMJ below.

Jacco Gardner at Death by Audio - 3/2/13 (via BrooklynVegan Instagram)
Jacco Gardner

Psychedelic pop visionary Jacco Gardner is on a tour now, which just hit NYC last weekend (3/2) at Death by Audio. If you like the harpsichord-y baroque psych found on his album Cabinet of Curisoties, you'll like his live show too -- he and his band pull off that sound almost flawlessly, from the groovy, flowing basslines to the three-part harmonies. It was hands-down the best-sounding show I've ever seen at Death by Audio. It was an impressive set.

NYC has another chance to see him on the other side of SXSW on March 23 at Mercury Lounge with his Trouble in Mind labelmates, Mmoss (tickets). But before that show, as mentioned, he'll stop in Austin for SXSW, and his show schedule has been revealed. He's playing a ton of parties and showcases, like the Austin Psych Fest party, the Trouble in Mind party, two Panache shows, FADER Fort, and more.

He'll also play a BrooklynVegan day party on Thursday, March 14 at 603 Red River St. (the old Emo's location). He's on at noon on the same stage that Parenthetical Girls play later that day. The party is 100% FREE with RSVP and the rest of the lineup will be announced soon. The flyer for Jacco's SXSW schedule is below.

Updated dates are listed, along with the flyer and a Spotify stream of his debut album, Cabinet of Curiosities, below...

Parenthetical Girls in Chicago in 2012 (more by Sarah Frankie Linder)
Parenthetical Girls

As mentioned, Parenthetical Girls packed material from their five Privilege EPs into a 12-song album called Privilege, which is out now. If you were already keeping up and have all of the EPs, the album may be less necessary for you, but for anyone who's yet to approach them, the album's a great collection of the material they'd been putting out. You can stream the whole thing and watch the new-ish video for its track, "A Note to Self," below.

Parenthetical Girls kicked off their tour last night (3/6) in San Francisco and it will be coming to NYC later this month. But before that, the band will stop in Austin for SXSW, where they'll play a few shows, including a BrooklynVegan day party on Thursday, March 14 at 603 Red River St. (the old Emo's location). They're on at 3:45 PM and the show is 100% FREE with RSVP. Full lineup coming soon.

Valleys

As mentioned, Montreal's Valleys will release their new album, Are You Going To Stand There And Talk Weird All Night?, on April 30 via Kanine Records. The duo just released the video for first single, "Undream a Year," which finds singer Tillie Perks stuck in a dreamlike surreality from which she must escape. You can watch it below.

Valleys will play NYC tonight at Pianos with Praha Depart, Bowmont, Man Without Country (who play our official SXSW showcase), and Late Guest at the Party. Tickets are still available. The band then head to Texas for SXSW like 73% of all the bands in the world. After that the band join up with Fol Chen for a tour that hits NYC at Glasslands on April 4. Tickets are still available for that show as well. All tour dates -- including their SXSW schedule -- are listed below.
